Sujo moved from India to the United States in February of 2001 seeking a new life of adventure and prosperity. He began his career on the North Tower of New York’s World Trade Center.

Just six months later, the unthinkable happened when a terrorist attack brought both towers crashing to the ground.

Sujo’s survival that fateful day proved to be the launching point for his motivational speaking career. Today he shares his story of hope and resilience to universities, sporting events, Fortune 500 companies and festivals in hundreds of cities in the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Africa. He has been featured in national and international media including the National Geographic, BBC, CBC, Associated Press, The New York Times, Huffington Post, The Times-London, and The National Post.

A changemaker is a dreamer.
He is tired of the status quo.
He is selfless.
He never forgets the ones that helped
him climb the ladder.
He never forgets the underdog.
He speaks the language of love.
He knows failure is part of the game.
But he will never quit trying.
